Learning Outcomes

- Student is able to study state-of-the-art in machine learning and signal processing methods and can adopt and adapt these techniques.
Student is able to design, train and deploy a machine learning model for classification and regression. She can also design a system for processing data from the domains of one of the three sub-modules.

Prerequisites

Signal Processing and Machine Learning 30 cr Mandatory If the student finishes a B.Sc. degree elsewhere than Computing and Electrical Engineering at TUT, then the prerequisite courses are determined by those of the individual courses of this study module.

Content

Compulsory courses

In addition to the two compulsory courses (10 credits), the student must select one of the three Selective Sub-modules: 1) Imaging and Computer Vision 2) Artificial Intelligence, or 3) Audio and Signal Processing (required courses for each are listed below).

Course Credit points Class
SGN-21006 Advanced Signal Processing 5 cr IV  
SGN-41007 Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning 5 cr IV  
Total 10 cr  

Optional Compulsory Courses

Optional compulsory courses are divided under the three selective sub-modules (20cr each): 1) Imaging and Computer Vision, 2) Artificial Intelligence and 3) Audio and Signal Processing. Student must select one of the sub-modules, but we also support other creative combinations (in that case contact the professors responsible for the module).

Must be selected at least 20 credits of courses

Additional information

This MSc (Eng.) major module strengthens students' knowledge on modern signal processing and machine learning. Module will specifically focus on state-of-the-art technologies and approaches that are requested in the top notch companies of data engineering, autonomous cars, robotics and so on. Under this major module there are three optional sub-modules which provide in-depth and state-of-the-art knowledge in one of the three most emerging fields: 1) vision and imaging, 2) audio and signal processing and 3) artificial intelligence. The major will thus consist of 10 cr of common courses and at least 20 cr of courses in one of the three sub-modules. This way we provide strong knowledge on signal processing and machine learning and one additional special area where the skills become expert level. All three modules provide strong knowledge and skills appreciated by the companies and especially their R&D units.
